He asks Kolt if he is ready to go somewhere with him all day, which might mean more farm work, and Kolt says yes without hesitation.
"And you never once complained", he told his son. Last Saturday, Kolt had to wake up early to complete his chores, which included feeding the pigs and watering the cows, all before playing a double-header baseball game.
Kolt's older sister Hannah Himes is the one who shared the video on Twitter, sparking all the attention. "I wasn't necessarily hoping it would take off, I just wanted the Cubs to see it and spread some positivity". She said Kolt had been hard at work on the farm for quite some time, while being an honour roll student and playing competitive youth baseball. Anthony Rizzo said he'd give Kolt passes to get on the field for batting practice and Kris Bryant wrote "Can't wait to see you Kolt!". More than 1,700 people have liked the post.
The tickets in question are for a June 3 game against the St. Louis Cardinals. First baseman Anthony Rizzo and third baseman Kris Bryant saw the video and made a decision to do something special for Kolt. Sports that her little brother watches every Cubs game.
